County offices on the move
By Jan Rahn
A juggling act is taking place at the Perkins County Courthouse with three of the offices switching floors to be more accommodating to both the public and to each other.
The county attorney office has already moved from the first floor to the second floor where the county court office used to be.
The county court office is temporarily located in the district court room until later in the month.
The former county attorney office on the first floor is being gutted and renovated, and then the veterans service office on the third floor will move there. The county court office temporarily located in the district court room will relocate to the veterans service office.
This should all be accomplished by the end of October, according to Perkins County Sheriff Jim Brueggeman.
The offices involved in the switch will be able to better serve the public and this will group similar offices on the same floor, said Brueggeman.
The county court and sheriff’s office will be adjacent to each other, and the county attorney will be one floor below to have easy access to the clerk, treasurer and assessor offices which he works closely with.
The veterans service office will be able to serve clientele better by not requiring them to take the stairs or elevator to the third floor.
New security measures are also being put into place for the office of the county attorney and the judges of the county and district court.
Brueggeman reminds the public to try to be patient during this transition time.
“By the end of October we hope to have everything situated,” he said.
